The travel insurance site Squaremouth recommends at least $50,000 in emergency medical coverage and $100,000 in medical evacuation coverage for overseas trips. If you’re visiting a remote location where medical care might be less accessible, or taking a cruise where medical evacuation may be expensive, the company recommends at least twice as much: $100,000 in emergency medical coverage and $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage.

“It’s important that travelers verify that they have at least that amount before they arrive,” says Kasara Barto, a spokesperson for Squaremouth.

Rates vary by country. Travel insurance plan rates have multipliers for each destination. Depending on the travel insurance underwriter and your desired country, continent, or region, these multipliers may differ.
